Barely Worth Fast-forwarding Through Except for the Actresses
I just rented this tonight. Seeing Katt Williams on the cover made me want to see it since he's the hot commodity in comedy these days. But I kind of blanched after seeing Master P's name as director. After seeing it all I can say is directing is one more thing Master P should avoid next to acting and dancing. Here he has Katt as a sandwich boy who wants to find his soul mate and looks to online dating to find the woman of his dreams. Instead of setting up different scenarios or vignettes for Katt's potential dates, the movie mostly has girls coming by the sandwich shop looking for Katt. The few scenes where he actually goes on dates are boorish and nonsensical. A whole lot of comics appear in parts that could have greatly benefited from the participation of real actors. It's kind of a shame because this should be something that Williams should be proud to put on his resume as a star comic but it looks like something he did while he was in high school. Not even funnier than some of those really bad SNL sketches that don't seem to go anywhere.
Master P's whole directorial career has involved trying to make comedies starring stand up comedians. Most of the cast are comics. Williams, Leslie Jones, Renaldo Rey, Michael Blackson among others. The problem is most stand up comedians make bad actors, especially with an inexperienced director. They don't have the instinct to work as an ensemble the way comic actors do. As a result a movie about a hot topic that had a lot of potential and well-known urban comics was very unfunny.
The one silver lining in the movie are the girls. Especially Sammy B. Willis, Liana Mendoza, and Sula Symonds, as well as Jessica Meza. All are incredibly hot and a goofy and geeky performance by Angela Maria. Though their acting was whack too at least they helped ease the pain of watching this steaming pile. If not for them, I would have given the movie a 1/10 instead of a 2.
